Hi, I had my LEEP on June 4, and have also been having abdominal pain. I was having very similar symptoms as yours, and a couple evenings in a row it actually felt like I was having contractions in my abdomen. I went to the doctor and they said I had an infection. I am on antibiotics now, which make me nautious, so they gave me something for that too (unfortunately I can't take it at work because it's a sedative and makes me fall asleep).

I kept thinking I might be pregnant even before my LEEP, due to breast soreness, dizziness, heartburn and nausea (and we were trying to get pregnant before I found out I needed a LEEP), but the doc took a urine test and said I wasn't. Then those abdominal contractions really made me wonder if I was preggo and it had been too early to detect it, and maybe I was miscarrying.

But now my post-LEEP bleeding has turned from the light brown pinkish discharge to bright red blood for the past two days, so I don't know if it's my period or just post-LEEP bleeding. I feel like a mental and emotional mess.

I wish the docs and nurses had warned me about the after-effects of the LEEP. They acted so casual about the procedure, because they do it everyday I guess. But it really has been a nightmare.

I wish you well, and hope you don't have an infection like me. You should definitely tell your doc about your symptoms at your follow-up. Good luck!
